Crafting the Sourdough Milk Bread Dough

  1. First, in a Bosch Universal Mixer, combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Next, turn the mixer on to speed 2 until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
    • Note: Depending on the level of fermentation of the Sourdough Starter, you may need to add more flour or more liquid. You can use more coconut milk or pineapple juice for the liquid if needed.
    • Note: The dough will be stickier than other Sourdough Bread doughs. This is due to the “milk” component.
  3. Finally, remove the Sourdough Milk Bread dough and place it into a Banneton Bowl.

Rising and Shaping the Dough

  1. Once the dough is in a Banneton Bowl, cover it with a tea towel.
  2. Next, let the dough rise, in a warm spot, until it has doubled in size (about 4-6 hours).
  3. Then, place the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
    • Note: This will allow the dough to firm up, slightly.
  4. Next, punch the dough down, reform it, and then divide it into three, equal pieces.
  5. Then, using a rolling pin, roll each section of dough into a long oval.
  6. Next, roll up each oval like a Cinnamon Roll and place it in a lightly-greased loaf pan.
  7. Finally, cover the dough with a tea towel and let it rise, again.
    • Note: You want the dough to double in size which typically takes about 4 hours.

  2. Next, bake the bread in the oven for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until it is golden brown on top.
    • Note: If the bread is browning too fast on top, place a sheet of foil over the top.
  3. Then, once the Sourdough Milk Bread is baked, carefully dump it out of the bread pan and place it onto a wire, cooling rack.
  4. Finally, allow the bread to cool to room temperature prior to slicing it with a Serrated Knife. Enjoy!

Storing the Sourdough Milk Bread

Sourdough Milk Bread, like other Sourdough bread, is delicious fresh out of the oven, or within the first few days. However, if you want to store the bread for a longer period of time, slice the bread completely. Then, store the slices of bread in the freezer. Finally, when you want to use the bread, simply take out how many slices you want, pop them in the toaster, and enjoy!
